body
BACKGROUND:
On January 24, 2017, this Board approved an agreement with MedAssets Performance Management Solutions, Inc. (MedAssets) to provide professional registry staffing for San Mateo Medical Center (SMMC) and its clinics. MedAssets was chosen through the Request for Proposals (RFP) process to fill critical staffing shortages in nursing, physical therapy, audiology, pharmacy staffing, and other departments at SMMC. The parties amended the agreement on November 8, 2017 to add administrative fees and reassign the agreement to Vizient, Inc.

DISCUSSION:
Multiple departments of SMMC have been experiencing an increased demand in services as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, an increase to the maximum amount is needed to fund the agreement through its term. SMMC will publish an RFP in August 2021 to seek vendors to continue to provide this critical service.

County Counsel has reviewed and approved the resolution and amendment as to form.

The resolution contains the County's standard provisions allowing amendment of the County fiscal obligations by a maximum of $25,000 (in aggregate).

It is anticipated that 100% of requests for temporary professional registry staff will be filled within 24 hours of request.
